From the start, Maison Louis Jadot has always accorded equal importance to each of Burgundy's appellations, from Grand Crus right through to regional wines. Our aim is to express the true nature of Burgundy through our wines, a terroir that can be both proud of its past and optimistic about its future.
Louis Jadot Beaune 1er Cru 153rd Anniversary Cuvee:
The strength of the Beaune appellation is grounded in its 337 hectares of premier cru vineyards, which offer great stylistic diversity. Founded in Beaune in 1859, Maison Louis Jadot has always focused on the terroirs of these premiers crus, emphasizing their huge potential. With the release of the 2012 vintage (a year of small yields and extremely high quality), we would like to offer you our Celebration of Beaune's premiers crus. This blend is based on a number of different climates, whose names are featured on the front label: Le Clos Des Ursules, Les Boucherottes, Les Pertuisots, Les Theurons, Les Avaux, Les Aigrots, Les Cents Vignes, Les Greves, Les Perrieres, Aux Coucherias, Les Tuvilains, Les Chouacheux, Les Montrevenots, Les Sizies, Les Reversees, Les Toussaints, Aux Cras, Les Vignes Franches, and Les Bressandes.
The wine is aged in oak barrels for 18 months resulting in a wine that is deeply colored and shows notes of dark berries. Its tannins are fine grained and silky, showing the hallmark complexity and richness of Beaune's premiers crus.
